US country singer Willie Nelson has reportedly been arrested on charges of drug possession.

According to NME, Nelson was charged with possession of marijuana yesterday while on tour in Texas.

The original report in the El Paso Times claims that a US Border Patrol officer pulled Nelson's tour bus over for a search and discovered six ounces of cannabis in the vehicle.

It is believed that Nelson was one of three people arrested in connection with the charges.

The singer has now been released on a £2,500 bail and will continue touring with a show in Thakerville taking place this evening.
